What to Expect

Ahmedabad Airport is divided into Terminals 1 and 2. Construction on a third terminal is scheduled to begin soon.

The pre-flight experience may be overwhelming due to crowds, confusing announcements, and long queues for the toilet, so arrive with plenty of time to reach your flight. Facilities are limited to a few basic eateries and some shops. Free WiFi is available to help pass the time. For added comfort, economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for its location and rates.
